  • Pour water into Dutch oven and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom with a wooden spoon.

  • Stir tomato sauce, green olives, garlic, vermouth, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes into chicken mixture. Reduce heat to medium and, stirring occasionally, simmer until liquid reduces to a thick sauce, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

White wine can be substituted for the vermouth.

This recipe is delicious!! I have done twice already and will definitely do it again. For the second time I substituted the bacon with ham and the green olives with black olives as I thought the green olives made the dish to salty (to my taste). Served over a bed of white rice. Read More

The bacon adds a great layer of flavor. I had pearl couscous on hand but my husband thought noodles would be a better choice. That's how I served it and would in the future as well. I did cut back a bit on the tomato sauce and although the instructions don't say to slice the olives I did cut them in half. Next time I will not cook the chicken to a deep golden brown would just cook until lightly browned. This mixture simmers for an hour and the chicken cubes ended up a little tough on the exterior from overbrowning. Easy to make with a deep rich flavor just takes some time to "stew" (pun intended) for the flavors to meld and the sauce to reduce. I would make this again. Read More
